Good sized adult curly haired tarantula... originally wild caught guesssing apprx 4 years old.
Considered by hobbyists as one of the more “gentle” species, this only adds on to the appeal for beginning hobbyist. The Brachypelma Albopilosum is usually very active when in captivity, sometimes even moving the decor around.
The humidity recommended for these species are between 65 – 70%. Thus, spraying or misting is not required, humidity levels as such can easily be obtained by simply having a water dish.
The recommended temperatures for these tarantulas are between 70 – 85 degrees F ( general room temperature). When setting up the terrarium for these tarantulas, keep in mind that they are burrowers, so they might be harder to spot. However when they reach around 3 inches, they tend to be in the open more than hiding.
When deciding the decor for the Brachypelma Albopilosum, always include some sort of retreat (for any tarantula for that matter). Especially for this species of tarantulas, keep in mind that floor space is way more important than height. The recommended amount of substrate/ ground cover should be at least 3 -4 inches. All in all this is an inexpensive species, because it is and its hardy and gentle nature makes it an ideal beginners tarantula.
